Solid Steel Show 2011-12-30 DJ Food, Coldcut, DK and Hexstatic

“We continue our review of 2011 looking back at the most popular mixes by the Solid Steel resident DJ’s, as voted by you the listeners. Again ‘In no particular order’, we start with DK’s first ‘Cymatic Frequencies’ mix from January (that also came with an AV mix). Kidkanevil, Ramadanman and Maddslinky remixed Toddla T all feature, alongside a Ninja Trio and a Big Dada double, plus James Blake, Caribou and Bassnectar.
The Hexstatic mix that also appeared in January, was your favourite with the classic Royksopp remix of KOC, leading into the lovely electronica Two Dots by Lusine. SBTRKT’s remix of Modeselektors ‘Art&Cash’ leads perfectly into maierial from Robin Hexstatic’s project, plus music from Magnetic Man, Andreya Triana and Dave Angel.
In hour 2 Coldcut’s mix from July got your vote with a live DJ set from Matt Black at the Energy Union party in Brussels. It starts with classic selections from Kwanzaa Posse, Armando Trovajol, Mr Scruff and a KC Flightt hip house track from ’87. Then it’s the Redshape remix of Martyn’s ‘Seventy Four’ and we keep the pace with DJ Naughty and the epic Seiji mix of ‘Timber’.
DJ Food aka Strictly Kev’s mix from October was a favaourite, celebrating the release of his third EP – ‘Magpies, Maps & Moons’ and he compiled a ‘Magpie Reader’ full of tracks from it, his collaborators and influences. Featuring exclusive unreleased tracks and remixes as well as his trademark spoken word treasures it’s a sonic guide to where his head is at and paves the way for his album in January.”

Solid Steel Show 2011-12-02 Hexstatic and DJ Irk

“Robin Hexstatic back in the mix again this week. We start off with classic Angie Stone,..remixed twice, first by Gatto Viola and then beefed up by Doc Daneka and on into some vintage house from Karen Pollack remixed by the mighty Murk. Julio Bashmore’s inimitable ‘Battle for middle you’ mixes nicely into some more vintage house,..this time the classic ‘Break Of Dawn’ from Rhythm On The Loose. Bang up to date now with Dauwd’s ‘Ikopol’, new Martyn with the epic ‘We Are You In The Future’ and a Hexstatic favorite – Akira Kiteshi with the bulging bass of ‘Transmission’. Fourtet’s lovely remix of Caribou brings us down nicely for a bit, before we slam into new Ninja Tune signing Starkey with ‘Villagers’. It’s more from the label courtesy of 16 Bit’s remix of Amon Tobin’s ‘Surge’, then the brilliant Amen heavy remix of Africa Hitech leads into the Transformers sampling drumstep of Heist, before we mellow things down with Isotroph and another fave beatsmith,..George Lenton, with On Repeat.
In hour 2 DJ Irk presents his ‘Too much pressure’ mix kicking off in his typical style with a sample heavy spoken word intro and onto some chunky west-coast beats from favourites illGates and Bassnectar, then transition through funk and blues and on to a few rocky beats from Kid Koala and DJ Shadow. Picking up the pace we move on to some funky midtempo sounds, including Dave Nada and Tipper, then finally out to new fLako wonkiness and low-end from Gatekeeper, Joker and Halp.”

Solid Steel Show 2011-06-17 Hexstatic, 2D and Ghostbeard

“Robin Hexstatic back in the mix this week. We start off with some nice house vibes from Matin Buttrich and SBTRKT and into Hexstatic present Trailer Trax’s ‘Can This Be’,..available for FREE (plug plug) here: http://hexstatic.bandcamp.com/ Next up is Magnetic Man’s ‘The Bug’, a deep and heavy dubstep bouncer, Dauwd’s Could It Be is an up-tempo and energetic 2-Step dance floor groove from the burgeoning Pictures Music label. Dark Sky’s excellent remix of Kelis then leads into the anthemic Kulture remix of Falling by Phaeleh. Next, two tracks from the awesome Cut Music Vol1 followed by arpeggio madness of XXXY’s leads into the surprisingly soothing Abyss from Reso and finished off with and all time favorite from Little Dragon with ‘Twice’,..suitably in it’s original and 16 Bit bootleg forms. In hour 2 we feature a mix from 2D which is heavy on the dubstep with music from Skream, Joker and Flux Pavillion, plus music from his latest EP on Resin Records ‘Give a little love’ taking in plenty of reggae and dub influences. To finish the second hour, Ghostbeard is back taking us back to the roots with music to hopefully kick start the summer. Prince Fatty, Horace Andy, and Max Romeo all feature, plus dub flavours from Grace Jones and Serge Gainsbourg.”

Solid Steel Show 2011-05-06 Hexstatic and Dangerscouse

“Hexstatic in the mix this week with, as ever, the broadest beats. Celebrating the release of the new ‘Scan Me EP’ we find a mix full of influences of summers both past and future. We start with classics from St Etienne, Funky Green Dogs and T-Connection,…then into some sunny vibes from Caribou. Djedjotronic’s Uranus hits us with some heavy electro vibes before Seiji gives us More Of You. A lovely bass heavy remix of James Blake’s now classic leads into the foot stomping re edit edit of Archie Bells ‘Time Is Right’. Uffies ‘SUV’ remixed by Armand Van Helden is a guilty pleasure slice of dancefloor cheese, but who cares when it sounds f***ing great on a Miami sound system 🙂 Hexstatic present `Trailer Trax’ new track ‘Her Scene’, a future retro rave anthem which you can download with the rest of this stomping EP for FREE here: http://hexstatic.bandcamp.com/ and leads into two remixes of Double 99’s classic RIP Groove and a haunting remix of The Beatles ‘A Day In The Life’ from Sei A to finish.
Dangerscouse returns to Solid Steel after 3 years and it’s another great slice of music to continue the summer vibes, starting with Max Romeo getting a Cumbia relick, Vadim’s project ‘The Electric’ and Ini Kamoze over Godessa. Classic breaks from Average White Band follows, then new music from Space Invadas with a similar feel and we continue through Basement Freaks, Leftfield and Radiohead to close.”

Solid Steel Show 2010-12-31 DK, Coldcut, Hexstatic and Strict

“We finish our review of 2010 looking back at the most popular mixes by the ‘Old Skool’ Solid Steel residents, as voted by you the listeners. Again,’In no particular order’, we start with DK’s mix from March kicking off with the excellent Warrior One remix of ‘Eyesdown’ by Bonobo and continue in a leftfield uptempo groove with Martyn, Joy Orbison and Octa Push, before dropping the huge bomb that is the Nero remix of ‘Sincere’. More bass heavy beats follow, before dropping down with new music from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron, Jay Electronica and the original from Billy Stewart. Coldcut’s mix from October was part of the Ninja Tune 20th anniversary celebrations, where they plucked out a few gems from the back catalogue as well as looking forward with tracks from the Ninja Tune XX compilation. DJ Vadim, The Bug and Ghislain Porier all feature alongside remixes of Coldcut tracks from King Jammy and United States of Audio, plus they have their own take on The Heavy’s ‘How you like me now’. Hexstatic’s mix from May celebrating their ‘Trailer Trax’ album, got your vote and it also came with it’s own Video mix. Taking it’s lead from the cheese of drive-in cinema trailers, ‘Grindhouse’ style movies and those Saturday Morning Cinema shorts of all our youths,..we see and hear these elements sliced and diced with techno, dubstep, dancehall and drum and bass rhythms into a whipped up frenzy that’s ‘now available in the foyer!’….. ‘The Mighty Gammera’ destroy Tokyo in a flash, ‘Galaxy Invaders’ scare rednecks with ill fitting plastic suits. Mix in some other favorites from the likes of Mantronix, Dizzee Rascal and DJ Hazard and you have one Blockbuster of a mix! Also from May, Strictly Kev’s winner brewed up a mix with a distinct whiff of Brit nostalgia taking in vintage electronica, psychedelic folk, outer space beats and deep dubstep. Moon Wiring Club, Broadcast & The Focus Group and Lost Idol all featured, plus tracks from Blockhead, James Pants and Gil Scott Heron.”

Solid Steel Show 2010-05-21 Hexstatic & Skywave Systems

“On the show this week Hexstatic celebrate the release of their ‘Trailer Trax’ album and also supply us all with another mix in some favorites from the likes of The Prodigy, Akira Kiteshi and DJ Hazard and you have one Blockbuster of a mix!
In hour 2 Skywave Systems give us his ‘Ban the mindreader’ mix. Never one to settle on a specific sound or genre he has been a fan of electronica, hip hop, techno, electro and broken beats since the early nineties and this is reflected in most of his DJ sets. Ban The Mindreader was created around the 60s urban legend from the Medway Towns of daubed graffiti warning of a murdering computer and the need to ban the mind reader. The mix features samples picked to suit the theme and there are musical curveballs to keep the listener guessing.”
